Description Warranty Information


The WoodMaxx DC-1260 is a self-feeding gasoline engine powered wood chipper that features a large 12" x 6" infeed opening and can handle material up to 4" in diameter. Weighing in at 408 lbs. this drum style chipper is equipped with a Professional grade Briggs & Stratton XR2100 gasoline engine that boasts 13.5 HP and 21.00 ft./lbs. of torque. Optional electric start is also available as an upgrade. The material is fed into a sloped infeed bin and fed into the 10" diameter 53 lb. chipper drum that acts as a power feed assist system pulling the branches in at up to 50' per/min. Although the chipper weighs over 400 pounds it is perfectly balanced and can be easily moved to the work site by tipping it back and pushing it around with the included handles.

1260 chipper July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Daniel Hodge from malone, NY United States  
Very good! Shipper was excellent and the assembly was a piece of cake. Few scratches on unit from shipping called customer service and sent me out touch up paint.  Unit starts first pull.  No oil included with unit was only downside.

Well Made - Great Customer Service July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Thomas Rademaker from Sea Cliff, NY United States  
Received the machine and put it together myself which is not recommended but I did it in about 2.5 hours. One should note the gasket between the feed chute and blades should probably be glued into place initially.  Mine was already split upon opening of the crate. Also the exhaust diverter screw/clamp was missing and the wire to the emergency shut off was cut.  However, Customer Service immediately and professionally attended to the parts and I had them quickly. Overall the machine is hard working. It does better with green material although after breaking it in, I haven't had a jam. Read the engine manual and be a bit generous with the motor oil. Order an extra set of knives.  Have run about 4 hours on this machine and have save a ton of time.  Taking it on the trails is effortless.  Well worth it particularly given the customer service.

DC-1260 - As good as advertised June 11, 2019
Reviewer: Jeff from Appleton, WI United States  
This wood chipper is delivering great results and is certainly as good as advertised.  A powerful unit with great balance for moving around without breaking your back.  I added axle extensions and the electric start as options.  Great job WoodMaxx!

Awsome Chipper May 20, 2019
Reviewer: William R. from Dushore, PA United States  
This machine is well built and eats branches up and spits them out into chips approx. 1/2" to 1" in size. No need to trim long branches down as the auto feed chute works great and pulls branches of any length right through. It also chips branches up to 4" diam  without missing a beat. The optional electric start is a nice feature and  glad I got the extended wheel base for greater stability on uneven ground. Great customer service and the chipper arrived in 10 business days. There was quite a bit of assembly required but I had it together and ready to use in about an hour. I have already recommended the WoodMaxx chipper and to two of my friends.

Excellent Machine for mid scale jobs May 15, 2019
Reviewer: MIC MARYANSKI from Hudson, WI United States  
Machine performs as promised, though chipping of green brush and small trees is easier than chipping of dry dead wood.  Engine boasts plenty of power for chipping to 3-4 inch range.  Easiest use is long straight members for chipping, which will go straight through in a single effort, but have a short saw handy for curved branches.
Things I would improve - send units with inflated tires, provide bolts and hardware of all the same size, and perhaps a larger hopper opening to allow  for larger "brush" size.  The machines self feed action is often overcome by friction of the brush at the top of the hopper, which causes one to have to force the feed for chipping.  Still, a 5/5 star rating!
